Story

Hi there,
 
This 2-6 March I have decided to challenge (/torture) myself by participating in the Tour de Transplant, a 5 day, 600km cycling challenge around Victoria. 
 
The Tour de Transplant is an event that raises money for the Second Chance Accommodation Program which provides desperately needed accommodation for the 50% of heart and lung transplant recipients and their families who come from outside Metropolitan Melbourne while they undergo their 3 month mandatory rehabilitation/recovery program following transplant surgery at The Alfred hospital.
 
This is a cause close to my heart, given that a great friend and inspirational lung transplant patient is himself organising the ride and leading the campaign, And given my own recent, relatively minor health scare, I have a new found appreciation for the stresses involved for patients and their families who experience a prolonged, stressful and financially draining illness followed by a difficult pre-transplant process which includes seriously declining health and increasing psychological stress.
 
The Heart and Lung Transplant Trust Victoria currently uses all funds raised to provide accommodation 6 one bedroom apartments near The Alfred - with this ride allowing them to maintain and hopefully even grow this program given that demand by people in need still outstrips accommodation supply.
 
Through clicking on 'Donate Now' you can make a secure online donation.  All donations over $2 are tax deductible and you will be issued with a DGR receipt via email as soon as you make a donation.
 
I would also really appreciate it if you could share my page above or comment below so more people know about it. 
 
Thanks so much for your support! 
 
Damien Augustinus
